FINGER ROAD BALLFIELD COMPLEX - NEW CONCESSION STAND/RESTROOM
Address: 3385 Finger Road
Cost: $150,000

The Finger Road Ballfield Complex is used primarily for girl’s youth and high school softball. There has been a desire for a number of years from the Optimist Club of Green Bay to install a concession stand with restrooms at the complex. Due to the fact that the site is a landfill, there were restrictions that did not allow for the development of the site to accommodate that request. Recently, the City was granted permission to install a concession stand with restrooms on the site. This funding will be used to get utilities to the proposed building. The Optimist Club of Green Bay will be funding the installation of the slab and concession stand/restroom building.


BAIRD CREEK GREENWAY - NEW PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE
Address
: 500 Beverly Road
Cost: $95,000

There is a trail located in the Baird Creek Greenway that needs to be rerouted. Historically, the trail crossed over railroad tracks but due to safety concerns from the railroad, the public is not permitted to cross the tracks where they once could. In order to safely move users throughout the trail, there is a need to cross Baird Creek to reroute the trail. This funding along with a $30,000 donation from the he Baird Creek Preservation Foundation will allow for users to safely travel through the Greenway.


WILDLIFE SANCTUARY - OBSERVATION BUILDING ROOF REPLACEMENT
Address
: 1660 E Shore Drive
Cost: $30,000

The Observation Building roof is in need of replacement. This funding will allow for the installation of new asphalt shingles on the roof of the building.


WILDLIFE SANCTUARY - SECURITY UPGRADES
Address
: 1660 E Shore Drive
Cost: $50,000

This funding will allow for necessary security upgrades for the Nature Center and 4k/Rental Space addition.


WILDLIFE SANCTUARY - ADDITIONAL PARKING FOR THE NATURE CENTER
Address
: 1660 E Shore Drive
Cost: $400,000

With the recent opening of the Nature Center’s 4k/rental space addition, there is a need to expand the area of parking to accommodate the additional users that will be using the new facilities. This funding would allow for approximately 50 new parking stalls.


MISCELLANEOUS PAVING - PEDESTRIAN TRAIL PROJECTS
Cost: $50,000

Park staff has recently applied for grant funding from the Department of Transportation for two projects. These projects include the installation of a section of the East River Trail “Missing Link” and expanding the Sergeant Benjamin Edinger Corridor/ West Side Trail. The Missing Link is a 1 mile section of trail that will connect the existing East River and Fox River Trails. In addition to the proposed trail connection, project improvements include easy access to the East River, gathering spaces, storm water management, trail lighting and eventually art. The West side trail is currently only .7 miles short from connecting to the regional Mountain-Bay State Trail in the Village of Howard. Funding for this project would include the engineering and construction costs needed to install the trail to connect to Howard’s portion of the trail. This funding would cover the required 10% match required to fund the projects if awarded the grant funding.
